The new game starring RoboCop, the late 1980s action hero, will be out in September — slightly later than planned — publisher Nacon announced Thursday at its Nacon Connect showcase. New images of RoboCop: Rogue City highlights what players can do when playing as the protagonist, part human, part machine, cop: investigate crimes, shoot bad guys, and issue parking tickets.
First-person gameplay of the RoboCop first-person shooter shows off a detailed, derelict Detroit and Alex Murphy patrolling the streets in search of idlers committing crimes. In the footage, RoboCop excavates a drug den in the basement of an arcade through very light detective work. He then loads his thunderous Auto 9 pistol into the faces of some street thug and switches to a submachine gun for even more violence. It’s damn enough that the gameplay of RoboCop: Rogue City is age related. You will have to watch it on YouTube.
Elsewhere in the gameplay trailer, we see RoboCop enforcing the law in far less destructive ways: by issuing a parking ticket to anyone parked too close to a fire hydrant. Here’s an animated GIF of that first-person ticket release so you can enjoy it online:
RoboCop: Rogue City brings back Peter Weller as the voice of RoboCop, and you get a sense of his much more sleepy dialogue in that gameplay footage. (Hey, Peter Weller is 75 years old. It’s okay! I’m glad he’s back.)
RoboCop: Rogue City will be released in September on PlayStation 5, Windows PC and Xbox Series X. Nacon hasn’t mentioned the previously announced Nintendo Switch version of the game, and we’ve reached out to see if that version is still coming.
